Ella Zimbalist

Ella Zimbalist is excited to join the Partnership for the Bay’s Future and San Francisco Foundation as an Associate Initiative Officer, where she will leverage her previous experience managing economic mobility programs at United South End Settlements in Boston to advance the Foundation’s mission of promoting equitable access to opportunity. Growing up in Northampton, MA, Ella was inspired by her family’s commitment to social justice, which led her to engage with local non-profits and pursue a degree in Political Science and Latin American Studies at Tulane University. During her time at Tulane, she served as a Community Engagement Advocate and interned in the MA State House with the office of Senator Jo Comerford. When she’s not working, Ella enjoys exploring the Bay Area’s hiking trails, practicing yoga, dancing ballet, and experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen.
